About Me

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton University, in association with the NOAA’s Northeast Fisheries Science Center (NEFSC). Prior to that, I got a joint Ph.D. in marine ecosystem modeling at Agrocampus Ouest (Rennes, France) and at the University of British Columbia (Vancouver, Canada).

My research interests are to understand the effects of the climate-induced changes in ocean conditions on marine ecosystems and fisheries. During my Ph.D., I investigated the effects of climate change on biomass flows in marine food webs and their consequences on marine ecosystems using a trophic- level-based model.

Currently at NOAA’s NEFSC, I am involved in assessing the impacts of the ocean environment on commercially important fish species within the U.S. Northeast Shelf marine ecosystem with a particular focus on integrating regional ocean model outputs in stock assessment. The objective of my research is to contribute to getting closer to a climate-ready fisheries management.
